Pre-Plan Review

We highly encourage scheduling a preliminary plan review to identify items that may need to be addressed or modified before 100% construction drawings are submitted for permits and plan review.

This meeting gives the owner or agent an opportunity to obtain answers to design questions prior to submission of construction documents for a building permit. Related topics include:

  • The Unified Development Code
  • Building and fire code clarifications
  • Discuss possible code modification requests
  • Understand the permitting process and submittal options
  • Answer any other design/code questions

As a way to partner with commercial developers, we offer this service to help navigate and understand our City’s process.

Based upon your needs, this meeting could involve attendance by multiple City reviewing entities and could cover topics that include:
